I understand your point of view. I like to use the standard AES OBJECT too, but again, Windom is not bad.
Technically, the AES code is much cleaner that many applications, the API easy to use, open source, stable and very well documented( and in ENGLISH
These qualities make Windom the best library available for a beginner.
Now, feel free to describe it as bad just because you don't like its USERDEF objets but personally I find that meaningless( especially that the modifications to have standard AES objects are easy to do, matter of minutes).

First, this library has been created at a time when the AES OBJECTs were not textured, at a time when XAAES was ugly and slow, at a time when MyAES did not exist.
The idea of the developers was to allow users the possibility to customize nearly every OBJECTS of an applications according to their personal taste through a global preferences program.
Do you know MUI on Amiga? Well, the concept is the same.
You don't like the look of an application? No problem, open the global preferences panel, 2 clicks and the ugly GUI will look like that:
I think that now, you should understand why even the buttons are drawn by USERDRAW.
But it's useless to speak about that, I'm not the Windom developper and I don't use this library anymore.
